The Vostochny Space Center has been under construction in the Amur Region of Russia's Far East since 2012. Vostochny will enable Russia to launch most missions from its own soil, reducing the country's reliance on the Baikonur space station in Kazakhstan.

A space launch vehicle, the Soyuz-2, will be the first to be sent to Russia's new Vostochny Cosmodrome in Siberia; it will leave the manufacturer on Sunday, according to Russia's Vice Premier Dmitry Rogozin.

Russia's Deputy Prime Minister in charge of defense has confirmed that a space launch vehicle which will be the first to take off from Russia's new launch pad in Siberia will be sent there on Sunday.

Dmitry Rogozin tweeted that on September 6 he will oversee the shipment of the spacecraft and in the evening he will cheer on the girls at the super-battle for the Russian Handball Super Cup.

The Soyuz-2 spacecraft will leave the facilities of the developing and manufacturing center TsSKB-Progress in the city of Samara in southeastern Russia and travel all the way to Vostochny Cosmodrome in Siberia.

The launch vehicle is scheduled to take off for the first time by the end of 2015. According to the schedule, construction work at the Cosmodrome is set to be completed by November 30.
